Cindy McCain Knows Her Geography

We keep reading in the press that republican VP nominee Sarah Palin is like Dan Quayle. Dan Quayle is one of our favorite political figures of all time. Mainly because he made more gaffes than Joe Biden on a bender.

Cindy McCain, during an interview with George Stephanopoulos that aired yesterday was asked about Palin’s national security experience (or lack there of). She said,”Alaska is the closest part of our continent to Russia, so it’s as if she doesn’t know what’s at stake here.”

This, of course was echoing Fox News’ Steve Doocy saying that Palin (who didn’t get her passport until 2007) does have international experience because Alaska is right next to Russia.

Which does remind us of ol’ Dan Quayle saying,”I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix.

Yay! We have another 9 weeks of this stuff!
